Address book sections

Hi,

In my outlook address book I have a dropdown which shows a list of different address books to select. How do I add an entry in here, or delete one? I assume it's from the exchange server somewhere?

Hello sherryfitzgroup,

maybe you better provide some more detail, are you looking to add a new distribution list or a new service

there is a message here that helps you adding a second users contact to your addressbook, but i'm not sure if that is what you're looking for

hope this helps a bit

Is this from the address book on exchange server?

Every contacts folder (or sub-folder) you have where the property "show this folder as an email address book" checked will appear in the drop-down list you are asking about.

By default, there is probally currently one for the GAL and one for your default contacts folder.

Thanks, where would these folders be stored, i don't see them in public folders. Every user on our exchange server has these 10 lists in the dropdown menu.

If you go to TOOLS - EMAIL ACCOUNTS - VIEW OR CHNAGE EXISITING DIRECTORIES - what do you see?

Wrong selection.

VIEW OR CHANGE EXISITING DIRECTORIES - you should see at least 1 address book.

Sorry yes. It shows Outlook Address Book type is MAPI.

And if you hit CHANGE - how many of them do you see.

If listed, it will give you an idea at where they reside.
If not, I believe they are being generated on the server.

It shows Contacts:Mailbox - My profile. So it seems all apart from my own contacts are stored on the server?

It was setup by a previous sys admin. Is there somewhere on exchange server I can check for this?

They were setup on System Manager in Recipients > All Address Lists
